        post("/ideas", (req, res) -> {
            String title = req.queryParams("title");
            // TODO:csd - This username is tied to the cookie implementation
            CourseIdea courseIdea = new CourseIdea(title,
                    req.cookie("username"));
            dao.add(courseIdea);
            res.redirect("/ideas");
            return null;
        });
    }
}

The challenge asks you to redirect the post request to "/" (using res.redirect).
